My work is born of the land and its forms macro and micro. As a child I preferred the company of trees—neighborhood games of hide and seek were an opportunity to be consumed by the forest, lost in the wonder of an unfurling fern or the deep time of these tumbled hills. My process is both scientific and intuitive, often utilizing an underlying set of rules to initiate a work but with final resolution both intuitive and emergent from the physical properties of the material. At my core, I am a painter though my materials and methods vary. I draw inspiration from observing complex and interdependent systems in the natural world. Relationships, synergy and dissonance observed in biological systems feed my creative process, whether it be land formations, forest biota or the biome of the cell. Liminality, a threshold between two conditions or states of being, is an important idea to me as I wrestle with the reconciliation of binaries. I think of my work as existing in the liminal space between waking and dreaming. Motifs of mountain, water and cloud become emblems for my exploration of Form/Formlessness, Time/Timelessness, Stasis/Flux.
